Restaurant notes: Bourbon-and-blues on South Street; a new Pizzicato
by Michael Klein, Posted: November 18, 2010
The liquor-control committee of the South Street-Headhouse District seems impressed with a proposal from Parc bartender George Reilly for The Twisted Tail, which he wants to set up in the former Kildare's on Second Street near South. Reilly calls the concept a "bourbon 'n' blues bar, paired with charcoal-fired grill cuisine. I want the food to reconnect with the origins of cooking over a real wood flame." The bar will feature craft beers and a broad selection of bourbons, which will also be prominent in house cocktails. Entertainment will be blues/rock. Reilly wants a relaxed and accessible space where people can let their hair down, have fun, and socialize.
Pizzicato Ristorante, now in Old City and Marlton, will open a third location, next to Moorestown Mall, on Nov. 22. Vince Tancredi, a 13-year veteran of the trattoria, will be executive chef. It's BYOB and larger than its siblings: 400 Route 38 Suite 8110, Moorestown; 856-778-3600.
